How to make Bootable pendrive with command prompt Linux(Without any software ….:-) …)

Sometimes we need to boot the windows 7 into pen drive from Linux operating system.Terminal is good friend of us then why to go for any software .we can make pen drive bootable without any software .Lets see how…!! 😉

  1. Plug in the pen drive and determine the device it’s mounted on with the command:

sudo fdisk -l

2. Umount the device

umount /dev/sdc1

In my case suppose its sdc1 , in your case it may be dev means device

3. Format the pendrive

sudo mkdosfs -n ‘USB-Drive-Name’ -I /dev/sdc -F 32

4.Make the ISO file recognizable to BIOS by using following command

isohybrid filename.iso

5.This step is to copy the ISO file from original location to pendrive

sudo dd if=filename.iso of=/dev/sdc bs=4k

Here write root of your device name for example if your device shown as sbd1 then here write /dev/sbd.

6. Finally before ejecting do following commands:

sudo eject /dev/sdc

That’s it. Very welcome to any queries. any one can issue a topic I can elaborate on that. 🙂
